Janet Woods was born in Coventry, a city almost in the exact centre of England, and has lived there all her life. In 1968, she was fortunate enough to marry a wonderful husband and, so far they have spent 48 happy years together. They have three sons, all happily married, a beautiful granddaughter of 20, and three grandsons currently aged 21, 7 and 5.
Since she was about 3 years old, Janet has been composing and later illustrating verse of all kinds, mainly narrative verse. She has performed recitations of her work in several Coventry primary schools, women’s groups and coffee mornings. She has also written plays and pantomimes for mothers and teachers – even the odd father! - to perform in the schools. Wonderful fun!
